These rack & pinion drives are perfect for an array of applications, including axis drives requiring precise positioning & repeatability, traveling gantries & columns, pick & place robots, and materials handling systems. Large load capacities and duty cycles can also be easily handled with these drives. Industries served include Materials Handling, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.
Eliminates the need for another mounting surface for the rail
Additional alignment between the rack and rail isn’t necessary
Space-conserving, performance optimized gear rack for railway axle designs can be achieved
Different quality racks available for best price-performance ratio
Allows assembly of rack and rail off of machine frame
This rack range further expands the already wide selection of ATLANTA rack & pinion drives. With this range, it is possible to achieve optimal styles for every application constraints. For suggestions on how to integrate the Integrated Rack into your design, please consult the factory.
Teeth: The teeth will be the portion of the apparatus that makes contact with another gear. To ensure that two gears to mesh together the pitch should be the same for all mating pairs. The pitch of a gear is the distance between comparative points of adjacent tooth. When one’s teeth of gears mesh correctly they prevent slipping and will exhibit efficiencies as high as 98%.
Our Integrated Racks mount directly to most regular linear manuals, eliminating the need for additional machining and alignment, saving money and time. Key benefits include:
Radius: The apparatus radius is defined differently depending on the particular portion of the gear being discussed. The two most relevant measurements, however, are the root radius and the addendum radius. The root radius may be the distance from the guts of the apparatus to the base of the teeth while the addendum radius (also known as the “pitch” radius) may be the distance from the guts of the gear to the outside of the teeth.
In order to make sure that the gear rack you get is right for the application, seek out a trusted and experienced gear rack manufacturer who will take time to listen to your application in order to suggest the proper product. Depending on your application and the requirements of this application, one’s teeth on the apparatus rack might need to end up being spaced a certain way to be able to provide appropriate torque and efficiency. This small change can make an environment of difference in how your steering system or railway track features.
Gears are mechanisms that mesh together via teeth and so are used to transmit rotary movement from one shaft to some other. Gears are described by two important items: radius and quantity of tooth. They are typically mounted, or connected to other parts, via a shaft or base.
